4.26/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Huge thanks to GHB!

Clear, sunny orange color, with a bright white head, dissipating to a foamy ring. Aroma is fruity hops, which I'm guessing is Mosaics claim-to-fame. There's some papaya, mango, and some bread crusts. The fruity hops carry on to the taste, lending some light tropical notes, a sweet honey taste, and a mild bitterness. Body is light, crisp, clean, and slick.

Having had a hand full of their hop monsters, I was initially disappointed...but then I slapped myself into realizing that this is not an IPA, and and it really showcases the Mosaic superbly.

Thanks to GHB for the growler.

Appearance: Clear gold with amber highlights. A finger of head retains solidly.

Smell: Layers of fruit - mango, guava, pineapple, blueberry. Signature mosaic aromatics. Subdued malt presence.

Palate: Juicy tropical fruit dominates. Mango and pineapple, hints of blueberry. A soft doughy malt backbone and mild residual sweetness amplify the great hop flavors. Light-bodied, mildly bitter. Supremely quaffable.

Overall: Loved this beer. Could drink this all day long.
